"Dark" Places on the narrow gauge -Hairpin Creek on Cerro

November 04, 2019 09:28PM
While I suspect that few places on the Rio Grande Southern remain "undiscovered" and unphotographed, that is not true for the rest of the narrow gauge. There are numerous areas that have, as far as I know, never been documented in published photos. One of the more intriguing places is Hairpin Creek on the west side of Cerro Summit. Trains climbing the west side of Cerro first followed the well documented section along Cedar Creek, and then turned into appropriately-named Hairpin Creek for about a mile before making a 180 degree turn and climbing the side hill of the canyon. I am planning to hike out the grade when hunting season is over, and when it is cold enough for to snakes to have retired for the winter. However I wonder if anyone has photos of this section of the line, perhaps early day
pictures.

Here is a map view of the Hairpin Creek route west of Cerro Summit
